The Cardiff Biotechnology degree has a strong practical component allied to Industry and Business. The number of jobs in the biotechnology sector has increased dramatically over the past ten years and is set to continue upwards as Europe restructures its industries. The range of employment of biotechnology graduates extends from technically specialised research positions, through scientific and, marketing. Biotechnology also develops transferable skills such as numeracy, data interpretation information technology, communication, writing and literacy. These skills will, as a graduate, help you to pursue a range of more general careers including management, marketing and finance as well as specific areas within Biotechnology itself.
